"A verdict of "Accidental death" was returned at Birmingham, today, on Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Jones, aged 72, of 50d Sherbourne Road, Balsall Heath, who was knocked down by a pedal cyclist in Belgrave Road on Friday. Harry Lloyd, of Pedmore Road, Dudley, the rider of the machine, declared that he did not see the woman until he had struck her. "She seemed to drop from nowhere in front of me," he said. Witness was thrown over the handlebars and rendered unconscious. The Corner : "Can you explain how you came to run into this woman?" - "I cannot. It was a dirty night." Medical evidence showed that Mrs. Jones had a fractured base of the skull, and died a few hours after admission to hospital."
